The Work Training Center's annual turkey dinner fundraiser has been cancelled this year. The dinner is usually held at the Elks Lodge Manzanita Place and has been a Chico tradition for nearly 60 years. After an analysis of last year's dinner by the W.T.C. Board of Directors and officers at the Elks Lodge Manzanita Place, the center is looking for a more efficient way to raise funds.
Last year's dinner raised twelve thousand dollars, but with the W.T.C. staff cuts and the amount of people required to put on the event, W.T.C. officials say the numbers weren't adding up. A golf outing fundraiser is planned for November 22 at Bidwell Golf Course with dinner and prizes. All proceeds will go to the W.T.C.
